George A. Romero machte die Zombies zu Kultfiguren... Seine Filme sind Klassiker des modernen Horrorfilms...

"Night of the Living Dead" (1968) - dt. Titel: "Die Nacht der lebenden Toten" - war eine verstörende SW-Vision...
Barbara und Jonnie werden auf einem Friedhof von einer Gruppe Zombies angegriffen. Barbara kann sich in ein Farmhaus retten, doch ihr Bruder überlebt diese Begegnung nicht. Zusammen mit Ben, der sich noch zu ihr durchkämpfen konnte, wehrt sie den ersten Angriff der Zombies, die plötzlich überall auftauchen, ab. Auf der Suche nach Waffen, entdecken sie fünf weitere Personen, die sich im Keller versteckt haben. Dann beginnt die Nacht, und ganze Horden von Untoten beginnen damit, die Barrikaden an Türen und Fenstern aufzubrechen...

"Dawn of the Dead" (1978) - dt. Titel: "Zombie"...
Eine unbekannte Seuche ist auf der ganzen Welt ausgebrochen. Die Wissenschaftler können nur Vermutungen anstellen und behaupten, der kürzlich auf die Erde abgestürzte Meteorit hätte die Erreger mitgebracht. Jedenfalls stehen die Toten wieder auf und versuchen die noch wenigen Lebenden zu fressen. Die beiden Polizisten Roger und Peter treffen sich nach einem Spezialeinsatz mit ihren Freunden Stephen und Francine, die zusammen einen Hubschrauber der örtlichen Sendeanstalt klauen. Nachdem die Vier lange Zeit über das überall schon verwüstete Land fliegen, entdecken sie ein riesiges in sich abgeriegeltes Einkaufszentrum. Sie landen auf dem Dach und verriegeln den ganzen Komplex, nachdem sie alle Zombies innerhalb der Geschäfte elimiert haben. Jetzt haben sie sich praktisch ein Paradies geschaffen, in dem es an nichts fehlt. Leider hat auch eine gut bewaffnete Rockerbande ein Auge auf das Einkaufszentrum geworfen...

"Day of the Dead" (1985) - dt. Titel: "Zombie 2"...
In der Nähe der kalifornischen Küste kreist ein Hubschrauber, der nach eventuellen überlebenden Ausschau hält. Nach trostloser Suche fliegt man zu der geheimen, unterirdischen Millitärbasis zurück. Dort lebt eine kleine Anzahl von Menschen, die sich aus Wissenschaftlern und Militär zusammensetzt und Experimente an "Zombies" durchführen. Man will versuchen die "lebenden Toten" zu kontrollieren. Als die Versuche mit den "Zombies" immer noch keine Früchte tragen und der Chef herausfindet, dass einer seiner toten Männer von Oberarzt "Frankenstein" an einen Zombie verfüttert wurde, dreht er durch. Jetzt kämpfen die Wissenschaftlerin und ihre beiden verbliebenen Freunde gegen das Militär und die Zombies...

Die Zombie-Fans warteten Jahre auf einen Nachfolger und im Oktober 2004 begannen die Dreharbeiten zu Romero's "Land of the Dead" (Arbeitstitel: "Dead Reckoning") !!! Möglicherweise verdankt er dies dem Erfolg des massentauglichen "Dawn of the Dead"-Remakes, u.a. mit Ving Rhames (u.a. "Pulp Fiction", "Missiom Impossible I-III"), welches am 15. April 2004 in in deutschen Kinos kam... Die geniale britische romantische Zombie-Komödie "Shaun of the Dead" läutete am 30. Dezember 2004 das Jahr der Zombies ein... Am 1. September 2005 startete Romero's "Land of the Dead" in den deutschen Kinos...

Romero liess recht schnell "Diary of the Dead" folgen, der hierzulande am 8. Mai 2009 auf DVD erschienen ist...

Zwischenzeitlich arbeitete Romero an "Survival of the Dead", der am 12. September 2009 seine Premiere auf dem Filmfestival in Toronto feierte und am 6. Mai 2010 hierzulande in die Kinos kam... Ausserdem versucht Romero - seit einiger Zeit - mit "Diamond Dead" eine Band wiederauferstehen und Erfolge feiern zu lassen... Und dann wäre da noch das Big Budget-Zombie-Projekt "World War Z" mit Brad Pitt, welcher am 21. Juni 2013 in den US-Kinos starten soll... Vorher kommt mit "Juan of the Dead" ein spassiger Zombiefilm in die deutschen Kinos - am 12. April 2012 !!!

[10.12.2009] Heute startet "Zombieland" in den deutschen Kinos...

[03.12.2009] THR.com meldet...
Jesse Corti, Danielle Harris, Bill Moseley, Joe Pilato, Alona Tal and Cornell Womack are lending their voices to "Night of the Living Dead: Origins."
The 3D CGI re-imagining of the George A. Romero zombie classic being directed by newcomer Zebediah de Soto. Simon West and Simon West Prods. president Jib Polhemus are producing.
The story again follows a group of humans trying to stay alive during a zombie attack.
Corti ("Heroes") is voicing a news reporter, and Harris ("Halloween II") plays a woman who held her family together forced to come to grips with its absence.
Moseley ("Carnivale") is reprising the role he portrayed in a 1990 live-action remake "Living Dead": a Wall Street-type with an expense account attitude.
Pilato, who appeared in 1978's "Dawn of the Dead," is voicing Harry Cooper, a blue-collar worker who lives for his injured daughter, and Tal ("Supernatural") voices his wife, Helen, who blames her husband for all the ills of the world.
Womack ("Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen") is a no-nonsense New York cop.
The movie is being animated with the voicework in the early stages
De Soto said some of the casting is "a nod to Romero fans. Horror is a genre and zombie movies are a subgenre that people have been following for years and years."
De Soto, whose background is in the commercials world, said he grew up in a household where his mother forbade him to watch television, fearing it would lead to smoking and drinking. When he finally saw his first horror movie, Romero's "Night of the Living Dead," it made such an impression on him that it created an obsession.
"When you're not allowed to watch TV and then you see this movie where this broadcaster speaks about this (zombie) disaster, it translated as so real to me," he said.
De Soto also said nearly all zombie movies end up in an enclosed environment, be it a house or a mall, and he aims to change that. He's counting on the CGI technology that he and his New Golden Digital effects company is developing.
"I wanted to make this look like a living Monet; it's expressionism," De Soto said. "It's going to be the first zombie movie played on a epic scale. This is the 'Empire of the Sun' of zombie films. ... I lived through the L.A. riots and saw the city on fire; I remember seeing people running, people getting pulled out of cars. And with 9/11, these images have been ingrained on people of my generation. I just thought that is the way it would really be, a lot of chaos."


[07.10.2009] Via MTV.com hagelt es Infos zu einem möglichen "Zombieland"-Sequel oder gar einer TV-Serie...
[...] "We would love it, and everyone involved creatively wants to do another one," Paul Wernick, one of the screenwriters, told MTV News before the film's release. "Woody came up to us after the final cut of the last scene and gave us a hug and said, 'I've never wanted to do a sequel in the previous movies I've done until this one.' "
In addition to Harrelson, Wernick and co-screenwriter Rhett Reese said the returning core crew would include Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin and first-time director Ruben Fleischer. If and when another film gets the green light, the writers have more than enough material with which to work.
"It has lived in our heads for four-and-a-half years," Wernick said. "We developed it and wrote it as a spec TV pilot in the summer of 2005. We've got a long brainstorming document that still to this day gets updated on a near-weekly basis with ideas. We've got tons of new ideas swimming in our head."
They haven't started work on a script, though, and weren't too keen to divulge any potential "Zombieland" sequel plot points. "It all obviously depends on what happens on Friday at the box office," Reese cautioned.
The box-office results are in - and are impressive for a film not based on an existing entertainment property - but Reese and Wernick won't be able to turn their attention to a "Zombieland" sequel right away. They've recently handed Sony Pictures a draft of "Venom," their screen adaptation for the Marvel comic book character, and are also working on a sci-fi flick called "Earth vs. Moon," which they hope will become a Will Smith-starring tentpole film. But they'll continue to update their "Zombieland" brainstorming document and look forward to making the comedy into an enduring franchise.
"We would love to do several sequels," Wernick said. "We would love to also see it on television. It would make a wonderful TV series."


[05.10.2009] CS! berichtet über die US-Kinocharts...
[...] the clear winner for the weekend was Zombieland (Sony Pictures), a buddy comedy set in a world overrun by zombies starring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin. The R-rated debut feature from Ruben Fleischer was able to capture enough interest among younger audiences to debut at #1 with an estimated $25 million in over 3,000 theaters, which isn't bad considering the movie cost roughly $24 million to produce. When Paramount a few months ago decided to move Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island to next year, the zombie comedy was the first to jump into the weekend to take advantage of buzz created from its presentation at Comic-Con, and it came into weekend with overwhelmingly positive reviews. The strong CinemaScores (generally A or A-) proves it to be one of those all-too-rare cases where moviegoers agree with the critics, which should prove strong for the movie's continued shelf-life against a number of comedies and horror movies opening over the rest of the month.

[29.09.2009] Bei JoBlo.com gibt es eine Kritik zu "Zombieland" (6/10)...

[28.09.2009] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik zu Romero's "Survival of the Dead" von Quint...
[...] it’s not a flawless movie. Some of the acting is limited, especially with the lead bad guy, but there’s nothing in this movie as laughably bad as the overly dramatic teacher from the last movie. The ending is a bit muddled and over complicated, but it has a solid foundation that supports the shenanigans at the end. [...]
I wouldn’t call it a return to form, but this is definitely Romero on an upswing. It’s not his best movie, but it’s very far away from his worst. [...]


[26.09.2009] Wie B-D meldet, scheint die Hauptdarstellerin für Zebediah de Soto's "Night of the Living Dead: Origins" 3D gefunden...
Genre vet Danielle Harris has scored the starring role in Zebediah de Soto's Night of the Living Dead: Origins 3D, a prequel of sorts to George A. Romero's classic zombie film that started it all. "All you're good luck wishes worked! Guess who's gonna be Barbara?!," Harris tells fans on Twitter adding, "Michael, vamps, and now zombies!!" On the story front, De Soto, who wrote the script with David R. Schwartz, wants to update the tale partially by bringing out the characters’ backstories and make what he called "an American-style anime." Harris is also starring in Stake Land and can be seen in both of Rob Zombie's Halloween films. [...]

[23.09.2009] Bei MySpace.com gibt es einen neuen "Zombieland" Clip...

[18.09.2009] Bei CS! gibt es neue "Zombieland" TV-Spots...

[17.09.2009] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik zu Romero's "Survival of the Dead"... Und THR.com berichtet über eine Neuinterpretation von "Night of the Living Dead"...
Zombie movie "Night of the Living Dead" is coming back, this time in a 3D CGI format and without the involvement of George Romero.
Titled "Night of the Living Dead: Origins," the re-imagining is being directed by newcomer Zebediah de Soto and produced by Simon West and Simon West Productions president Jib Polhemus.
On the story front, De Soto, who wrote the script with David R. Schwartz, wants to update the tale partially by bringing out the characters’ backstories and make what he called "an American-style anime."
The latter will be done by using new technology the filmmaker is inventing. De Soto, along with partner Gus Malliarodaki founded New Golden Digital, a digital effects company which develops cutting-edge hardware and software.
The duo created and designed a real-time effects system, known as 'The Beast', which allows filmmakers the ability to direct CG performances the same way they would direct real live actors. The aim of the process is to make tennis balls on a stick representing real people or monsters a thing of the past by allowing actors interact with CG elements as if they are tangible.
Matty Miranda and Anthony Le are executive producing. George Passakos is co-executive producing while Warren Davis and Tiffany Shinn acts as associate producers.
De Soto, who has no agent or manager, directed a short titled "War Dogs" - sort of Vietnam War set in space - that made the rounds in Hollywood late last year. West (the director of movies such as "Con Air," "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider," and the upcoming TV show "Human Target") and Polhemus were impressed at how the short manage to look like the production had a higher budget than it actually did, and began looking for a project to partner on.
De Soto was a fan of the original "Living Dead" and once the trio realized the rights were in the public domain, zeroed in on that project.
